How did it go? According to the Ann Arbor News [post edited 4/3 to add link], not very well:
Newman was arrested Feb. 4 after a scuffle with Washtenaw County security officers after he entered the courthouse, authorities said. He was charged with felony resisting and obstructing an officer, causing injury, officials said. That case is pending.
Brilliant. Par for the course. But that's not even the best news. DTE's lawsuit against him was settled last week, and here's the damage:
Ann Arbor landlord Dale Newman was ordered to pay DTE $637,273 after a judge found him guilty of utilities fraud and awarded triple the damages incurred.
DTE filed a complaint against Newman in October 2007, charging that he failed to pay for gas and electric services supplied to the properties he owned or managed in Ann Arbor. DTE alleged Newman engaged in utilities fraud that involved gas meters.
Beautiful. However, $637,000 is only about 250 security deposits; I'm sure he's been at it long enough to have it stashed for a felonious rainy day like this.
